This took a lot of trial and error before I was comfortable wearing it. Now seeing this, I wish I had put one more connector at the bottom to hook the two parts together. I had to tug at the cording and rhinestones at the top to get them less bumpy when you actually wear it.
Also, I really struggled with finishing the ends (this happened with my bracelet too). That part makes it look really homemade. I wish we had spent more time in this class learning about the closure piece and good tricks to keep things connected well.
